Favorite Restaurant Beef Recipe

Adding complementary and delicious flavors to your steak recipe enhances your dining pleasure!

There are three "keys" to this wonderful steak:

  • select a tender cut of quality natural beef steak
  • cook the beef to the exact doneness you like
  • add the properly prepared brandy butter

Steak Recipe with Brandy Butter

Preparation time: 10-12 minutes. Serves 4, but you may have extra butter to freeze for other times and other favorite restaurant beef recipes!



  • 1 pound butter
  • 2 ounces brandy
  • 1 tablespoon coarse ground black pepper or peppercorns
  • 1/2 cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/2 ounce fresh garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • Four 4-6 ounce steaks (sirloin or another tender cut of beef steak)


Instructions for this restaurant recipe:

  • Put all steak butter ingredients in a food processor and process until creamy (or mix the old fashioned way in a bowl with a spoon until creamy)
  • You can heat your brandy butter in a pan or skillet if you wish (optional)
  • Get your barbecue or your broiler hot
  • Brush the steaks with olive oil and place on grill
  • DO NOT SALT MEAT until it is off the grill
  • Cook to desired doneness (temperature)
  • Plate the steaks and let them "rest" for a minute or two (they deserve it)
  • Serve the steaks topped with about 1 tablespoon of the brandy butter

That's it! Good job!

Hey, what about the remaining brandy butter? No problem. Place in a container and into the freezer to use again!

I recommend using a meat thermometer to achieve perfection in getting the exact doneness you desire for your steak. (See cooking temps below).

Meat Thermometer Cooking Temperatures
NOTE! The meat continues to cook for a few minutes after you remove it from the heat.

  • RARE: 130-140 degrees
  • MEDIUM-RARE: 140-150 degrees
  • MEDIUM: 150-160 degrees
  • WELL DONE: 160-170 degrees
